in thread Win32 GUI Input or Event

Figured it out. What I did to get this to work is loop checking for one of two flags. The DoEvents method coupled with a while loop checks for both outcomes, albeit not concurrently. I had to put a short sleep timer in the loop or the click would not register. I've also removed the onMouseMove params from the buttons because the mouse clicks were not registering with them on their.

So here's what I changed to get this to work:

use Time::HiRes qw(usleep); #added use vars qw/$cc_number $exp_dt/; #add these two my $input1 = ''; #added these here so I my $input2 = ''; #could use them in subs my $swiped = 0; my $clicked = 0; # ... #old code matched in this section # ... $event_field->Append("Please swipe card... "); $window->Show(); $window->DoEvents(); while ($swiped != 1 && $clicked != 1) { $swiped = check_swipe(); usleep(750000); $window->DoEvents(); } if ($swiped == 1) { $event_field->Append("swiped\n"); } sleep 1; $event_field->Append("Connecting... "); sub check_swipe { $input1 = $card_input->GetLine(0); $input2 = $card_input->GetLine(1); if ($card_input->GetLine(1) !~ /\?$/) { $card_input->SetFocus(); $input1 = $card_input->GetLine(0); $input2 = $card_input->GetLine(1); $window->DoEvents(); } if ($input1 =~ /^\%B(\d{16})/i) { $cc_number = $1; } if ($input2 =~ /\=(\d{2})(\d{2})(.*)/) { $exp_dt = $2 . $1; return 1; } return 0; } sub manual_dial_Click { $card_number_label->Show(); $clicked = 1; }

    This old solution was not very good. What I ended up doing was using the keydown event handler and regex'd on that string.
